The actress, who plays Maddy Perez in the HBO drama, briefly touched on her grief while discussing her latest project. Recalling how the set of her new Calvin Klein campaign shoot with Inez and Vinoodh was “light and fun,” Alexa said the energy was much-welcomed in her life following the actor’s passing.
“I’m realizing that healing and processing does not look like one thing,” she told W magazine in an interview published Aug. 18. “So right now, I’m trying to be light when I can.”
She added that working with Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin allowed her to tap into a range of emotions, as the famed photography team knows “how make you feel so comfortable, so powerful, so beautiful, but also vulnerable.”
“I was kind of shocked because usually there’s some tension or some drama on a big campaign shoot,” the 32-year-old shared, “but there was nothing of that sort.”
